For American fans of Chipotle, you'll feel very at home here at Benito's hat. Staying just a couple of blocks away at Smithfield, I stumbled upon this Mexican joint looking for something quick and veggie friendly for dinner.

I ended up going two nights in a row, and completely enjoyed it both times. Great veggie burrito that includes guac at no extra charge. I didn't have a drink, but the...more

The guac was not very good as well. I do better at home.more

Cheerful title and a good back story always win me over. I tip my hat to you.

The cafe literature describes Benito's Hat as a family built and run cantina serving up fresh, homestyle Mexican food. It's named after one of the Mexican presidents who had a notable affinity for decorative hats. Makes sense.

I cannot yet comment on the food, though I am sure I will be back to try their tempting...more
